When Is The Best Time To Trim Your Hair?

The Best time to trim blog banner: boy with afro hair

We all know trimming should be part of a healthy hair journey. However, it’s one of those things we tend to push aside because it feels like we are going backwards. When one of your hair goals for your child is long hair, trimming can feel counterproductive. But we promise it really is not! Here are tips for deciding when is the best time to trim your child's hair:

boy with mum afro and curly hair: when is the best time to trim

If you’ve never trimmed before: When is the best time to trim?

If you’ve never trimmed your child’s hair before and your little one is at least 5 years old, you might want to consider the first trim. Even if your child’s hair is on the shorter side, the ends can be weakened by manipulation when styling or combing. For a first trim, we recommend twisting the hair in small to medium sections. Then, trim off the very last part where the twist gets thinner. This way you are not overwhelmed with a particular cut or length. All you need to do is follow the natural twist and cut off the thinning part.

Original Honey Rain Juice Detangler
Kimberley (Harlesden, GB)
This is essential for your hair care!

I usually wait to see the overall results before submitting a review. After using this product for over a year and previously trying other brands, I can say that it is the best by far. It detangles and provides moisture to my hair. I have seen the growth and retention since it was recommended. Certainly a must have!


No grease !! I tried the Quench Anti Breakage Cream my hair is super hydrated and soft. Definitely will buy again as this moisturises my hair superbly. Lovely product.

Simply the best!!!!

It's not very often that I'm impressed by someone. I saw Sal online talking about her hair products. Her passion for all things hair coupled with her inspiration from our Creator further impressed me. I tried the Grow It Long Scalp Serum and the Super Growth Root Energiser [which I've only used once]. I actually cannot believe the transformation my hair has achieved! I had lots and lots of hair loss and bald patches and the combination of these products has improved my hair so much, I'm shocked at the results!!! I have posted pictures here so you can see the results for yourself. The first [CURRENT] picture was taken on the 10th June 2021 and a second [BEFORE] picture was taken the 20th May 2021 , both on the same side of my head. Sal you are such an inspirational person with a beautiful spirit. I thank you for all you have done to improve our hair and all you continue to do for the Black Family.

The Back2School Afro-curly kids Moisture Kit

Works wonders

I brought this for my 2 year old who has quite thick coily hair. The honey rain detangles his hair so quickly I can literally run my fingers through it. The heaven milk, is nice Silky and moisturising the sun light cream is great on the ends of his hair to lock everything in

Ever so moisturising

Absolutely love this! I brought this for my daughter but decided to use some in my hair the other day and I couldn’t believe how moisturising it was and the moisture last for a few days, my hair is usually quite dry. Will definitely purchase again
